Homeworkers could see their winter bills rise by £107: Utility bills could soar by £107 for those working at home, because of the increased need for daytime heating during the winter.

Price comparison service Energy Helpline has found in a new report, which suggests households in the UK could see an increase in energy bills of almost a fifth as a result.

Homeworking,  findings reveal during the winter between October and March could see the nation’s total energy bill rise to as much as £1.9 billion.

Figures show a homeworker by working from home during the winter will spend on average £21 a day meaning four days a week could add £84 to a homeworker’s energy bill.

Director of Energy at Energy Helpline, Tom Lyon said: “With many offices expected to be partially or completely closed over autumn and winter, millions face a worrying hike in bills from working at home at the time of year when we use the most energy.

“It’s vital that energy suppliers and Ofgem do all they can to support consumers who are struggling to pay spiralling energy bills.”
